Winter turf prep: Overseed, colorant or hybrid

It’s about time to consider the fall turfgrass plan for winter management. Are you planning to overseed, apply colorant or considering a combination of the two?

Breathe life into soil with Agriox

If there is one thing you cannot have too much of in soil, it is oxygen. Agriox is more efficient than physical aerification processes because air doesn’t provide as much oxygen as Agriox can provide. Together, physical aeration techniques complemented by Agriox’s increased soil oxygen, leads to optimal spring time green up and healthy turf.

As many sod growers and golf course superintendents experienced a setback in spring greenup and growth due to late March frosts, Agriox is helping turf professionals nationwide more than ever.

Endurant isn’t just fast. It also lasts, up to 3 months, depending upon the rate of growth, mowing, and off track maneuvers from race car drivers.
